Convert RGB from a Surveillance Camera to AVI or Similar?

Actually signal comes from a Red and yellow RCA Plug.
Is this possible?
I would like to monitor and/or possibly Record it on my Computer.
Not onto a TV.

There are plenty examples of that exact AV digitiser, and many of them will ship to Canada.

Funnily enough I ordered on a couple of weeks ago from China, although it's not come yet.

However, the signal on the red and yellow plugs is Composite, not RGB.

Sorry, I Forgot I already had one that I was using on a VCR.
Haven't used it in a Year or so.
Guess I am Just Getting too OLD and FORGETFUL.

Composite aka RCA ... the yellow wire
not to be confused with
Component aka RGB ... 1 wire for each color

also be wary of the capture cards, i bought 3 before i was able to get one with drivers post win98
